Had Sunday lunch which was lovely. Food was well presented, very tasty and plenty of it. Such a shame that this is the last service. Lovely village pub, in good location with fabulous staff, shame it has now stopped food completely. Will be a major loss to the village.

Excellent food, friendly prompt service, nicely decorated pub. Couldn't fault our meal at all and I had a lovely couple of pints too :)

Hello, I really like the dining room at the Bank House, particularly in the daylight hours because of the relatively spacious layout, comfortable seating and light aspect. It is a place where you can have a proper conversation with your friends. On this occasion it was my birthday and I had set my heart on one of your pizzas. Unfortunately, the weather had been cold and wet, so that the pizza oven was not ready for lunchtime. This was a disappointment, but understandable. We ate from the fixed price menu, which was good food and good value.

Starter - fish platter. Food bland. Odd to have pitta bread there. Whitebait fish horrid. Main course - steak ok, a bit grissly. Chips nice. Friend had anchovy’s with her chicken ceaser salad? Odd combo Desert - Eton mess, far too much cream and not enough meringue

Came for Sunday dinner. Welcomed well and shown through to table. Order was slow to be taken and then again food very slow to come out considering they weren’t full! Food was nice but I had fish and chips and it wasn’t anything spectacular after having some really lovely food here before.

The service was good, always with a smile. Unfortunately the food was very average and not worth the money. I thought it was poor value for money and will not be booking a Sunday lunch again.

We have been going to the Bankhouse since the Lewis Partnership took over 1-2 times a week for food and drinks. Never had a problem until this occasion and today 8/9/2019. More importantly today. The service is second to none and the venue is lovely. I’m afraid the new chef really needs to sort the food he is giving to customers. My wife and I had a half and half roast dinner. Presentation looked great but the roast beef was very rare and cold. We weren’t asked what our preferences were and have ordered this dish many times. The beef has always been lovely and a little pink. The worst part of the meal was the potatoes. They looked like they had been cooked really well in the oven. In reality, they had been deep fried and had not been drained. My wife used two napkins to drain the fat off one of them. Without realising this, I bit into a small one which resulted in the back of my throat immediately being swamped with hot oil. It was absolutely disgusting. To top it off, my daughter who is 11 commented as to why her burger bap and chips were covered in blood. I cut her burger in half, the meat was raw in the middle and cold. Really, giving potential ecoli to an 11 year old, really not cool. To be fair, the staff handled it really well. It’s really put us off going back there again for food unless there is a change of chef. It’s a shame really.

The food was fine, the staff were great but not for the first time we thought the service was slow, particularly as the restaurant was nowhere near full.

Everyone in our party had a lovely evening. There was a large party at another table but the staff were attentive, friendly and efficient and the food was cooked perfectly. Thankyou.

Our server was rushed off her feet as she was by herself but she remained smiling and helpful the whole time. A credit to your team.

The service was very good. My steak was not the best but still edible chips needed another minute. Starter was very good also dessert.

Although it’s got quite a ‘locals’ feel to it, the people are friendly and there’s always good service. A good range of menus too
